The Internet has delivered us yet another fantastic distraction from actually getting things done; this time in the form of The Internet Archive. The IA geniuses have presented us with thousands of our favorite childhood MS-DOS games to play for FREE. Did I mention that I love you, Internet Archive?
While The Oregon Trail is obviously a huge draw (I mean, who doesn't want to die of dysentery? Figuratively, of course.), I found myself geeking out over games like Zelda, Wolfenstein, Donkey Kong, SimCity, Pac-Man, Doom, Street Fighter, Indiana Jones, Pole Position, Gremlins, Psycho, Carmen Sandiego, Wayne's World & Beetlejuice, amongst many others. These were the games of my childhood!
Party Time! Excellent!
If you want to escape from the everyday or just feel a little bit of childhood nostalgia, this is definitely the place to go.
